Pastoral care

At Old Palace of John Whitgift School, we believe that the welfare of each member of the community is of paramount importance and that every student needs to feel safe, secure and happy within her learning environment so that she is able to develop a strong sense of purpose and self-worth; we want her to feel valued for who she is and for her unique contribution to the life of the school.

We are as fully committed to the personal and social development of every young person as we are to each individual’s academic progress and we know that students benefit most when home and school work closely together. We want each student to develop confidence in herself as a student and to gain the skills needed for future achievements; we hope that she will enjoy learning and set herself high aspirations, responding positively to the responsibilities and the challenges of school life.
